 I checked creation zvol snapshots and I have this problem if zvol name length plus snapshot name length are longer than 59 symbols.

mdconfig -a -t malloc -s 200M
zpool create zfs0 md0
zfs set volmode=dev zfs0
zfs create zfs0/bhyve_volumes
zfs create zfs0/bhyve_volumes/freebsd_amd64_10_stable
zfs snapshot -r zfs0/bhyve_volumes@`/bin/date +\%H:\%M:\%S_\%d-\%m-\%Y`

mdconfig -a -t malloc -s 200M
zpool create zfs1 md1
zfs create zfs1/bhyve_volumes
zfs create -sV 100M -o volmode=dev zfs1/bhyve_volumes/freebsd_amd64_10_stable
zfs snapshot -r zfs1/bhyve_volumes@`/bin/date +\%H:\%M:\%S_\%d-\%m-\%Y`

zfs list -t snapshot | grep zfs.
